Bit of smudging, I'm just a learner :)

That's great Carole, it's difficult with pastel to get things so detailed with small flowers so really well painted 😀

So much to delight in as always Carole

They are indeed Carole, although I did expect the frost to kill them off the other day. This is so delicate and beautifully drawn as always.

Thank you Linda, yes not a precise media.

Thank you Dennis and Alan very kind.

Nice pastel Carole, it shows up well on the dark background. Patricia French

Stunning work, Carole! Love the elegant simplicity of this piece.

Beautiful, Carole, and one that would look great in a small frame. Is the paper a black sandpaper? It really helps the light colours. The drooping effect of the main bloom and leaves is spot on. Brian

Thanks everyone for being very encouraging. Brian I used Pastelmat (anthracite) thank you.

Beautiful study Carole, you’ve chosen the perfect background to show it off.
